Greg, Gabrielle, and I were in Toronto this weekend for the 40th annual conference of the Art Librarians Society of North America (ARLIS/NA).

We got to walk around a bit and see some of the cool Toronto sites like the CN Tower.

On Saturday evening the librarians let loose at a cocktail party at the Frank Gehry-designed Art Gallery of Ontario at Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD). Next store is the Sharp Centre for Design by architect Will Alsop.

On Sunday, I ate poutine.  Twice.

We went to sessions on a variety of topics such as advances in cataloging, teaching with artists’ books, and preserving audio visual material. Just to name a few.  Greg presented JeopARTy and I led a workshop on mentoring.

The conference is an educational and inspiring treat for us, however it does take a few days to recover. So if you notice that we look a bit dazed, have no fear–by next week we will be refreshed and raring to go
